In progress Environmental assessment

Cooksville Creek Erosion Control at Camilla Road

The City of Mississauga is undertaking a Schedule B Class Environmental Assessment Study for erosion control and restoration of Cooksville Creek at Camilla Road.


Cooksville Creek originates in the industrial lands north of Highway 403 before flowing through the study area at Camilla Road and ultimately discharging to Lake Ontario at Helen Molasy Memorial Park.

Camilla Road Cooksville Creek Erosion Control study area

This section of Cooksville Creek, which spans 200 metres, consists of an engineered channel constructed approximately 30 to 40 years ago with areas of stone-filled gabion basket walls and concrete-lined channel.

The channel is no longer functioning as intended and is posing a risk to infrastructure, property and the environment. Some of the impacts of the deteriorating channel include: slumping of gabion banks; fractured concrete channel; and accumulation of sediment and debris.

Through the City’s ongoing erosion monitoring program, this section of Cooksville Creek has been identified as requiring rehabilitation.


The main goal of this project is to mitigate the existing erosion problems and ensure long-term stability of the creek using natural design techniques, where feasible, while also protecting or enhancing the existing natural environment within the study area.


  • Improves the stability and environmental health of the watercourse
  • Maintains or improves the hydraulic capacity of the creek, and protects nearby infrastructure and property
  • Enhances aquatic habitat and riparian vegetation
  • Opportunities for planting of native species, and enhanced wildlife habitat where feasible

Online Public Information Centre

The City held an online Public Information Centre (PIC) for the Cooksville Creek at Camilla Road EA Study over the month of April 2022. Through the PIC, the project team presented the alternative solutions and the preliminary recommended solution identified for Cooksville Creek to the public for review. The presentation is available within the project documents section.

Project File

Project File has been prepared to document the planning, decision-making and consultation process for this study. The Project File is available to the public for review for a 30-day comment period starting March 6, 2024 to April 4, 2024.
